Far Cry 6 is finally out, and there is a pretty intriguing line-up of new characters and Far Cry 6 Amigos companions for you to meet. Since Yara looks like the perfect place to get creative, many fans are wondering if character creation will make a return and what options are in the game for customisation. First introduced in Far Cry 5, character creation was added as a way to let you bring more personality to your chosen character.
In Far Cry 5, you could change your face, hair, skin tone, and your clothes before you joined the community to pick a fight against Joseph Seed and his cult. While it didn’t play a huge part in the general experience, it was a neat little addition that fans have come to love.
But, in Far Cry 6, things are looking a little bit different. Here’s everything we know about Far Cry 6 character creation and character customisation ahead of the game’s release.
Far Cry 6 Character Creation
Far Cry 6 does not feature character creation. Instead, you only have the option to choose between the male or female version of protagonist Dani Rojas in the opening of the game.
Far Cry 6 Character Customisation
Far Cry 6 does feature character customisation though, and you’ll be able to swap out items of armour over time.
However, character customisation isn’t purely cosmetic in Far Cry 6. Instead, each piece of gear Dani owns has its own stats and mods which affect gameplay. The game does also include a transmog system so you can switch the look of your gear without affecting the mods equipped.
This is one of many ways Far Cry 6 is becoming more of an RPG than ever before, with traits equipped to each piece of loot and gear you find.
That covers Far Cry 6’s character creation and character customisation and what you need to know about it ahead of the game’s release. For more details on Far Cry 6’s systems, check out our Far Cry 6 Amigos companions guide. Also, we have a ton more guides in our Far Cry 6 walkthrough.
